Spring Quilt Market -- PORTLAND..!!

I had to get up at 3:00 AM to get to the airport for my 6:00 flight. But it was worth it -- because, with the assist of the TIME ZONES -- that meant I had almost a full day in Portland!!
I am so glad I grabbed this crappy photo of the Portland airport.  Do you see why I'm taking this picture?  IT'S A GUY PLAYING A GRAND PIANO..
Portland has a great system of trains..!!
Hey -- I was in New York City last month -- I CAN DO THIS..!!
Rhonda and I met at the airport -- dropped our bags at the hotel -- then WE GOT ON THE TRAIN...
We took it all across town to Washington Park.
A man at our train stop told us we'd go through a very long, deep tunnel.
Washington Park has a lot of things.  The zoo, the Arboretum...the Japanese Gardens, the Rose Gardens.
But we were very interested in this tunnel thing.
The tunnel goes under the Tualatin Mountains.
It is over 2 miles long and -- 700 feet deep.  The deepest subway station in the United States!!
When you take the elevator to get above ground -- THERE IT IS..!!
Beautiful, stunning Washington Park.
Good job, Portland!!
